change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to step back, catch my breath and just say why is this. why is this going on? why does obama have the lead he does? why is from the having difficulty, and what many people argue should be the core limping along economy and a president that has done so much as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of vo

that a third airplane flying over washington, d.c., very close to the building we are in, the united states capitol, went down the street less than a mile and crashed into the pentagon. and that was at 9:37 eastern time. then a fourth airplane, we remembered as flight 93, was flying toward washington, d.c., probably the capitol or the white house where some good right thinking folks took control of the plane from a high jacker an they were -- hi jacker and they were -- hijack er and they were crashed in a field. on september 11, 2001, this nation was attacked. 3,000 people were killed that day. it's interesting that the attackers decided to attack the world trade center because people from 90 nationalities were in the world trade center building. the south and the north. so it was more than an attack on america, it was an attack on the people of the world. freedom-loving people. people who believed in living life and liberty. the murder was done by 19 radicals who murdered in the name of religion. of the 3,000 people that were killed, 411 of them were emergency workers. 341 were members of

that threatens the very viability of the united states senate. last july the obama administration used the flimsiest of arguments, granted themselves the authority to waive federal welfare work requirements. and whether or not what they, the obama administration intends to accomplish with these waivers is good welfare policy has been the subject of robust debate. i'm not here to argue the merits or lack thereof of the underlying welfare policy goals of the obama administration. what i am here to do is to make a plea to my fellow senators, as senators we simply cannot let this action stand. if we fail to stand together as senators in defense of our constitutional duty to be the ones to draft legislation, we might as well pack up our bags and go home, because we will have opened the door for this administration and future administrations to unilaterally decide they can waive precedent, congressional intent, and actual legislative language as senators have scrupulously debated and compromised on. if we do not stand together as the united states senate, we will be ceding our authority to t

first. so of not red or blue states, what the united states. i no they're not that many football fans here today. my first story about president obama has to do with football. he was the last interview that i did for my book. i interviewed three andrew and 50 people will for him and traveled the world. i thought about what i would -- how i would break the ice with him for a long time. i remembered that he is a bears fan than i am a pakistan and that two years ago when the packers played the bears in the nfc championship game president obama announced that if the bears won he was going to the super bowl. the packers won. and the star player on the packers after the game got up on the table of the jesse berman said, president obama will come see us, but we're right to go see him at his house meeting if you win the super bowl you to visit the white house. this was their star quarterback, so when i finally got my interview with president obama and shook his hand and said, mr. president, charles got here before me, but i'm glad we both finally made it. he said, yeah, man, those packers wer

in washington. consulates around the united states. we make sure they are adequately protected. particularly, when you get a rocket attack like that, it is an act of war and all to be treated as an act of war. i don't have the details yet. if we had an embassy personnel murdered, that is a sad situation. you have to express regret for the families that are involved. but the most important thing is we have to show the world that we are a nation that lives by international law. we expect other countries to live by international law. this is a violation of international law. your doctor take appropriate action. host: hear the statement from secretary clinton on the death of the personnel, ambassador christopher stevens and three others. the statement goes on from there. secretary clinton says all the americans we lost in yesterday's attacks made the ultimate sacrifice. we condemn this vicious and violent attack which took their lives, which they had committed to helping the libyan people reach for a better future." guest: of all your years ago the president made a gracious effort going around t
. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these

, and say you mustn't step over this. if the united states isn't serious about saying you can't go to 90% enrichment, can't go critical, can't build a bomb, can't explode a bomb, it would draw those lines, but refusing to do that basically is a green light. it seems to me that iran understands that, they get it, and they really good in effect a wink and a nod, which is really what that does. >> sean: in other words the president is showing weakness. >> yeah. >> sean: a lot of weakness, emboldening the world's enemies as ahmadinejad is saying israel will be eliminated pursuing nuclear weapons, and, you know, basically doing what they want. >> well, the spectacle of the failure of this president's naive outreach to the muslim world, and his naivete to think they would stop bothering him is just apparent to the american people. you can't miss it. >> sean: you've been saying, there's no way romney is going to lose this election. and you have your own thoughts, methodology, and polls to back up what you're saying. look, i don't feel i can predict here right now. i can't tell you what's going
this monday night, a top iranian commander is now threatening to target united states military bases should israel attack iran's nuclear program. iran's president is here in the big sitting mouthing off as ever even after the head of the united nations warned him you better tone it down. mahmoud ahmadinejad in new york city set to speak to the u.n. general assembly this week but oh, today, he enlightened us all with a preview when he said israel is a fake regime that will be, quote: eliminated. >> we have witnessed that some members of the security council with veto right have chosen violence with regards to the nuclear warheads of a fake regime while at the same time they impede scientific progress of other nations. >> shepard: the white house firing back, quote: president mahmoud ahmadinejad's comments are uncharacteristically discussing -- i sudden say characteristically disgusting, offensive, and outrageous. they underscore, again why the u.s. whiment to israel unshakeable and why the world must hold iran accountable to meet its obligations. its fox top story and jonathan hunt is live
.n. general assembly. probably not likely to be instituted or supported by the united states who is already the biggest contribute ter to the u.n. over 20% of the u.n. budget. here is what has been proposed. a 1% tax on billion nargs around the world. a tax on all currency trading in the u.s. a tiny tax on all financial transactions. >> how tiny? >> not sure. >> new taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. this has for the past year these ideas have been bandied about and the overall overarching goal would be to help transfer money from richations like the united states to poor developing countries. now, what's interesting is that this would be entered into the actual record of what was discussed discussed it at t. when foxnews.com reported on this. they were suddenly sent an unsolicited statement from the u.s. mission to the u.n. the united states opposes taxes. any source of revenue should remain under the control of national authorities. this is an idea that has been kicked around for years. fortunately it hasn't gone anywhere nor will it. >> in other words, we didn't think the
've been talking this week about red lines that he doesn't want iran to cross before the united states would be involved in military action. i think he's going to lay out what his red lines are and to say to the world, listen, this is a crisis that the whole world has to deal with. i think this is seen as his final warning that if we done see movement on this issue, israel will have to act. >> i want to talk about the iranian president. i'll let you first eat a little crow. you made a prediction that was wrong. >> i thought -- i said yesterday on this show that i thought ahmadinejad would kind of go for broke, kamikaze in his last u.n. general assembly. instead, he talked about, you know, this new world order that he sees when the world powers would have less influence. but he wasn't as fiery. he didn't mention israel by name. i think a lot of people were surprised. in the statements he was saying leading up to this appearance he was much more fiery. i think in addition to ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general asking him to tone it down, i think maybe the supreme leader in iran said
, and he is the president of the united states. wilson, he is sick. but he sends his secretary of state to the convention to emcee the convention. >> host: he wanted the nomination. >> guest: he wanted the nomination, and harding, coolidge, hoover, fdr is on the ticket as a vice presidential candidate, and so you have this hook and so much else going on with the league of nations and everything other thing. and 1960, we move on to where you have three titanic personalities. we don't have six but we have three of the biggest name brands in presidential personalities ever. kennedy, nixon, johnson, and so very, very different. so very, very different amibitions in terms of personal, and something which i think resonates so much with folks who are reading books today. 1948, a great cliffhanger, and we love to listen to the experts and get the weather reports, and they're always wrong, and the polls are always wrong, and the experts are always wrong, and by god we love it when we're smarter than they are, and it turns out we can look back in hindsight and see how wrong they were in 1948. and
. of course, his visit, there's always controversy, side stories. the united states has not issued the full complement of visas to the delegation accompanying the iranian leader. about 20 or so according to the iranians out of about 160 people. the u.s. has an agreement with the united nations as the host country for the world organization to allow people to come here no matter the level of dispute. however, the u.s. also does reserve the right at times, especially in tough diplomatic relations, strained relations, and no relations with iran, to not issue visas if it so sees fit. but ahmadinejad has his visa. along with that baggage you mentioned. >> we were showing pictures of the warwick hotel, a posh hotel in new york city. that's where ahmadinejad and his entourage are going to stay. there will be protests outside the hotel later today, right? >> i think so. the warwick has been his latest place of residence. any group that opposes ahmadinejad has always denounced a new york hotel for allowing him to stay there. this has gone on. there was someone who was injured in a bombing who has su
of this debate. ultimately the fault line in the united states is not the fault line between the people receiving federal assistance and those who aren't. what we want to do is get people off those things. that status ought to be transitional. and they ought to ultimately move to the point where they are, if you will, taxpayers or they working full time and so forth. that ought to be the debate, and that's what's missing. again, what's missing i actually think from this campaign is not just optimism, but it's a set of ideas on the economy, on the budget, on our role in the world. you can't -- neither candidate is actually putting forward much in the way -- you say an optimistic agenda. i'd also say a positive agenda and have two candidates who are painly counterpunching and they're refraining from putting forward ideas lest they be attacked. this is a very defensive campaign. so you don't say what tax expenditures you'd get rid of. you don't exactly say how you would curtail entitlements. everybody's playing defensive. but what this shows, but not playing offense, you're still on the defensive. b
